XProtect Professional+ Wins ‘Security Today 2017 New Product of the Year’
Milestone launched XProtect Professional+ in June of this year and sales took off briskly. On August 17, Security Today magazine and SecurityToday.com announced that the product is a winner of their ‘2017 New Product of the Year’ for video management systems.
The Security Today New Product of the Year Award honors outstanding product development achievements of safety system manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. More than 100 entries were received in this ninth year of the independently juried contest. Winners were honored in multiple product award categories.
The New Product of the Year contest gives us a terrific sampling of security solutions, but what is more amazing each year is the technical savvy that comes along with new products. Our juried judges must be able to understand technology and innovation to stay on top of the security solutions that will blend into the platforms in use today, and what will be expected of them tomorrow. Our New Product of the Year contest allows forward-thinking manufacturers to share their vision of security. – Ralph C. Jensen, Editor in Chief of Security Today magazine
XProtect Professional+ is the newest video management software offering from Milestone. It provides operators with a long list of best-in-class features:
- Support for unrestricted number of cameras including H.265 compression, 4K, UHD, and edge storage recording redundancy
- Management of multiple site locations, centrally or locally via three user interfaces: XProtect Smart Client, Remote Client and Milestone Mobile with Video Push
- Integration with analytics, access control, laser scanners, geospatial locators, and more
- Multi-layered maps, full alarm management, and 2-way audio support
The early results are proving that this offer is positioned really well for enterprise class video management at a mid-market price. Customers can use XProtect Professional+ when they start a smaller business, while partners with larger projects find it hits a real sweet spot for function and cost – and it scales seamlessly over time. The high adoption rates support why it deserves this award. – Matt Fishback, Business Development Manager, Milestone Systems
